of the year. thousas are taking part in cpac 2013 including big names like marco rubio, paul ryan, jeb bush, rand paul. one or all four of those men could end up fighting it out for the republican presidential nomination in 2016. but this cpac better known as the conservative political action conference sometimes is described as part rally, part political revival, part family reunion. thank you for giving us that qualification. one thing they do is they have a vote. a straw poll of the big names in the republican party to see who is potentially up there in the big names for 2016. sarah palin, on it. won it way back in the day. jeb bush, not on it. jeb bush not on the list. one of the biggest names talked about. why. >> he would be formidable if he were to seek the republican national convention. he's promoting his new book on immigration. we are told from sources that he asked that his name not be on the straw poll. that was his basic decision though he's a major speaker there. we'll see who wins the straw poll. it doesn't necessarily mean that whoever wins will get that republican presiden
%, marco rubio got 23%. you look down the list there was paul ryan, chris christie, in other words the top recognized, dr. carson got a good chunk of change there, so we showed that indeed the party is revolving around these new leaders in the conservative movement. we also have a couple of different tents. we've got libertarians, tea party activist, establishment conservatives so the whole idea of the cpac is to bring the whole tent together. >> although, senator paul might object to the, close to isolationist which has never been among the three things that reagan conservatives have stood for, what do you think it says, if anything? is this just a party in search of itself? >> well, as someone who was part of the democratic leadership council in the early '90s on staff. >> moderate, trying to moderate the democratic party? >> a group of democrats who were trying to lead the party out of the wilderness at the time and successfully did so, what you see out of cpac as an outside observer it's a chance for people to introduce themselves. i'm not sure that anybody, any american walked away wi

presidential election, mitt romney and paul ryan both told us that there were trillions of dollars of tax breaks for very wealthy people, they proposed to eliminate them as part of tax reform where they reduced the rate. we say, let's take some of that revenue to help reduce the deficit, combined with other targeted cuts. >> be more specific for me. when you talk about tax loopholes and the very wealthy. which specific loopholes and what is very wealthy? >> sure, sure, these are, when you're in the highest tax bracket, you're in the 39% tax bracket when you get a deduction, whatever it may be for, you get 39 cents worth of deduction. whereas somebody who is in the 28% tax bracket only gets 28 cents deduction for that particular deduction. so what we're saying and this is similar to a proposal the president's put forward, is that for folks who are in that very high bracket, the 39% bracket, the value of your deductions will be limited to about 28% which is what the value of deductions is for a middle income taxpayer. >> so ultimately, the budget that you have there and i just read the litt
of the party, senator marco rubio and paul ryan will speak just 11 minutes. the question, is c-pac giving the wrong people the biggest platform? pete? >> yes, i bet you anything my friend will cain will totally agree with me. on much of this, the idea that this organization and other conservative commentators i thought are more out for themselves, making money for themselves than the conservative movement this is antithetical of what the conservative movement needs to move. why not bring strom thurmond back from the dead? donald trump and sarah palin are done. put the fork in them. the future is marco rubio and the day groups and they are not inviting them. >> they haven't this year. will. >> that depends on c-pac wants to be if they want to guide future direction of republican party, the answer quite obviously no. donald trump has a bigger role than chris christie is absurd. but if you want to sell tickets, you have probably done are right things. and some who realize those two things aren't necessarily mutually exclusive. and ran paul proved that. stand on principles, be smart, get peop
the here and now. paul ryan just released his budget. do you support it? >> i do support paul ryan's budget. it is a comprehensive plan to address the growing unfunded liabilities of the entitlement programs at the federal level. so that we can save the safety net for those who need it. and that we can bring the budget into balance and grow the economy. that's the essence of what the plan is about. >> mr. leader, in order to achieve that balance, to balance the budget, it also assumes that $600 billion in tax increases that you opposed in january. >> well, i mean, unfortunately, we have, in fact, after the last election, a situation where the status quo of the president there, the democratic controlled senate and the republican house, that those tax increases were something that the president supported. but i can tell you, if you look at the alternative vision coming out of the senate, there really is a two separate visions of the way this country ought to go. on the one hand, we have the house budget that is -- promotes a balance within ten years, that can grow our economy. and that you ca
on a host of issues, especially the budget and those forced spending cuts. yesterday, paul ryan presented a republican plan that he claims balances the budget in ten years. he challenged the white house to do the same, but the president is not biting. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. if we have controlled spending and we have a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance, but it's not balance on the backs of, you know, the poor, the elderly, students who need student loans, families who have got disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> ryan's budget also again called for a full repeal of president obama's health care reform. >>> so, a little honky tonk happiness for former president george h.w. bush. the 88-year-old made a cameo at the school of government and public service that bears his name at texas a&m university for what he thought would be a regular photo op. instead, he found a flash mob. ♪ >> this happened earlier this month, but the video just made its way to youtube. bush 41 was with f
